Anima Libera - Free spirit, that’s the name that Emiliano Falsini chose for his wine label. Emiliano is a consulting enologist, that’s a winemaker for hire, he comes in tells you what to do and moves around a lot, kind of like doing stages in dozens of restaurants. So when he decided to produce his own wine he was looking for something that described him but also his wine, because in his wine he didn’t have to please the winery owner to make a wine taste a certain way he let the wine be what it wanted to be, a Free Spirit, just like him. This Chianti DOCG is textbook perfect, the aromatics of delicate cherry, hints of leather and earth are classic but when it hits your palate it expands with a plumier center adding weight to the naturally acidic Sangiovese and producing a very pleasant mouth feel. A perfect pasta, salumi, roasted chicken or cheese plate wine you’ll free your spirit a bit with it!
Drink from 2014 to 2016
